Hey There Friend

My favorite roses to color are those featuring yellow.  Yellow roses are a symbol of joy, friendship, and good health.  This image is a digital from Power Poppy.  I print these out on an Epson Artisan 810.  This may be an "old" printer by now but it works well for digital images which will be colored by Copics.  I use the Epson card stock called Premium Presentation Paper Matte.  It must be "premium" to work.  It is a thin card stock I'm guessing maybe 45# or less.  The magic is that when you use Copics on it you get such a bright saturation of color...it pops.  There are downsides as well though.  You can't erase color pencil and those little color pencil bits that may get on your work are there forever.  It's probably very easy to overwork the Copic color and saturate this card stock but that isn't how I work so it's ok for my style.
